    The s*it’s getting real. I really like this episode.

    The lines about choices rings 100% true and the comments by Gkar I find interesting especially if you look at it from the perspective of knowing how it all plays out in the shadow wars.Report

    But not unprecedented in human history.Report

    You all probably realized this, but Lady Morella was played by Majel Barrett, wife of Gene Roddenberry, Mother of Troi, admirer of Spock, keeper of the Voice of the Computer, etc, etc. Yes, Koenig is a large part of the show, but it really meant a lot when she guested in such a prominent role.Report

    I think the distinction they were trying to draw is between martial rule and martial law. B5 is under martial rule normally – it is run by a military governor and its security personnel are Earthforce military. But civilians who are charged with a crime are tried by civilian judges, not a Court Martial, and B5 security don’t enforce military rules of conduct on the civilian populace.

    What I suspect changes with the imposition of Martial Law is the replacement of a civilian judiciary with an Earthforce one, presumably under the control of Night Watch.Report

      It forms an interesting contrast: B5 is under martial rule and civilian law, and Earth is under civilian rule and martial law.Report
